Rosenstock Resigns As Metropolitan Conductor

Download PDF for this date

Josef Rosenstock, recently named the new German opera conductor at the Metropolitan Opera House, has resigned as a result of a collapse he suffered in the three weeks he has been conducting. The collapse is blamed on his lack of familiarity with artistic criticism and conditions in the new world. Rosenstock is a well known German Jewish conductor who had been invited to America by the Metropolitan. Arthur Bodansky has been asked to return as guest conductor.
